Silencing the Right? Nay, it is called silencing dissent. Never thought Joe the Plumber should have been trashed to the extreme he was merely for his exchange of ideas with then Candidate Obama. Looks like there will be no position in a 2nd Obama Administration for rising star Newark mayor Cory Booker. http://www.humanevents.com/2012/06/08/cory-booker-is-dead-to-barack-obama/


I would cite CARB and local 'Air Resource Boards' that ASSUME the right of judge, jury and executioner. In Sac Co you can have armed men storm your 'private property' if you heat your home with a wood stove on unapproved days... in our neck of the woods our Air Resource Board can trespass on private property for such egregious acts as 'creating a smoke nuisance' or god forbid using newspaper to start a fire. Traditional peace officers (Police and Sheriff) have been circumvented by zealous progressives.


Or the county building inspector who takes a tour of the interior of a home looking for code violations, after the homeowner pulled a permit to upgrade electrical in a detached garage.

When people show up unannounced, don't let them in. If they wander about your property, scare them away. If they persist, keep a copy of the 4th Amendment handy in big print. Also, get one of these:


If someone comes to your door, asks to come in and you say "OK," then it's your fault. Just say no. If people say you are being weird, then tell them you'll protect their 1st Amendment right to say that.

James Madison drafted The Bill of Rights to protect us from government intrusion as well as preserve States' rights. The government has no right to intrude on your property without a warrant unless there is eminent danger to someone. Burning a newspaper does rise to that test.


Ryan, if you pull stunts like that (verbally using the 4th amendment) I would suggest openly recording it :).

Our Air Resource Nazis consider newspapers 'household trash' which has illegal to burn. Anytime smoke is present they use the 'eminent danger/safety of others' BS to circumvent the 4th Amendment.

p.s. I bought 2 doormats.

Bought one of the mats for the Front Gate and I will continue to light my fire pit with newspaper.

First of all I'd like to thank you George, for your wonderful articles. I also am grateful for all the intelligent comments on your blog. It's like a breath of fresh air in the smog of political corruption.

Silencing and Suppressing the Right

billy T's got it!

"Silencing the Right? Nay, it is called silencing dissent." or, trying to kill it off!

They should enjoy their power while they can.

...and then there is this!

And the beat goes on. Never question the left's scared cow or even raise a question. Crucify is a term that has finally come back in vogue. About time. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/06/09/man-visited-by-armed-epa-agents-not-satisfied-with-answers-wants-agency-changes/?test=latestnews

billyT 1144am - thanks for the link. This is an important report that expands on how the EPA has become one of many rogue federal agencies.

Here's a little factoid that the right wishes it could silence: A Walton (Wal-Mart) family fund invested heavily in Solyndra. It wasn't just a Democratic debacle.
Seven things you should know about Solyndra

George Rebane

DougK 805am - That's a silly proposition. Why on earth would the right wish to silence the news of Walton family's foolish investment???!! Is that part and parcel of your understanding of capitalism and the values of the right?

Free market capitalism is not all wise; it takes risks and makes mistakes in its work to provide the most for the most. However, it beats the living you-know-what out of competing ways to generate wealth and organize its distribution.

David King

Here is a new book on where the money comes from.

"The New Leviathan: How the Left-Wing Money Machine Shapes American Politics and Threatens America’s Future"

For the next time the left whines about whos got the money!
